Author Fred Waitzkin tackled parenthood in his book Searching for Bobby Fischer. Now in his latest work, The Last Marlin: The Story of a Family at Sea, Waitzkin chronicles his own childhood as well. “From the Long Island Sound to the drug-infested coastline of Bimini and the marlin-rich waters of the Gulf Stream, Waitzkin comes to believe that fishing is the answer to all his problems, even as he starts his own family.”
Called a “remarkably ambitious and satisfying memoir” by The New York Times Book Review, and “a graceful father–son memoir that artfully braids rich, disparate strands” by Outside Magazine, The Last Marlin is a tribute to the sea and the friendships and connection it fosters.
For one day only on, today, March 26, 2017, Open Road Media will offer the Kindle version of “The Last Marlin” for for $2.99.
